The dance comes from the Itsmo Region in Oaxaca. The huipil (headdress) is known as the shining to grab the attention to the female face. The velvet skirt is hand embroidered with silk thread and flower design.Below the velvet skirt there is a white lace. Sometimes they have a flower on their hair, this  is an indication of the status of the women,wearing to the left it means the lady is single, wearing to the right it means the lady is married. The Tehuana lady can be carrying a bowl made from dried pumpkin.

This art print illustration is an ideal gift to add style and colour to any home or office. Also it is a great and original souvenir for those who enjoy collecting art to hang on their walls.
